Computer randomly restarts

  1. Hi!
    I had to replace the cooling fan for my CPU in my computer because one of the fan blade broke off. When I did, the computer keeps restarting when it trys to load windows. I try going into safe mode and "last good know configuration" but it does the same thing. I don't have a windows cd for it eaither.
    I plugged the fan into the same spot.
    It looks like its trying to give a blue screen but its restarting waaaay to fast...

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Did you remove the entire CPU cooling heatsink assembly, or just the fan?
